Screw Machines

Vertical air cleaners were used to collect the mist and smoke generated from screw machines. Eight units were installed about 10 feet from the finished floor and were arranged so as to create a circular air flow pattern. The units provided 12 air changes per hour which improved the air quality 65-80%.
